Abstract and Keywords

This article provides an introduction to African philosophy. As time passes African philosophy becomes increasingly difficult to summarize. This is due as much to new discoveries about or orientations toward its past as it is to the ever-increasing publications of contemporary African philosophers concerned primarily with issues relevant to the present and future. This article discusses ethnophilosophy and the postmodern, phenomenology and analytic philosophy, and Marxism and feminism.

Keywords: African philosophers, ethnophilosophy, postmodern, phenomenology, analytic philosophy, Marxism, feminism
